SEPTEMBER 01-09, 2022

Bonjour Mesdames et Messieurs, Iceland is a magical place for photographers. That's why I am excited to be hosting this workshop along with top Icelandic tour guide Thor Jonsson!

This is more than just a workshop, it is also a way to discover another culture with amazing food and sights! I am very excited for this workshop, and I am sure it will be incredible memories for you!

This workshop will only have a limited number of participants. I really want to keep a small group so you can enjoy this experience to the fullest!

Iceland
Workshop: Day 1

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 01st, 2022

Day 1

Welcome to Reykjavik! We will meet late afternoon in the lobby of our host hotel and go from there to a nearby restaurant for a meet and greet Welcome Dinner where we get to know each other and have a chat about what we will be doing during the coming week.

Note: Upon arriving to Iceland, we suggest using the FlyBus service from Keflavik Airport to the host hotel in Reykjavik. Taxis are also available near the terminal building. The FlyBus service is located right outside the terminal building and the cost is around $35USD each way. Book online using the FlyBus Plus service which will drop you off at your hotel. You can book a round trip to take you back to the airport after the tour. Book FlyBus online:

1. Visit https://www.re.is/flybus

2. Choose the FlyBus+ service which will ask for your hotel information.

3. Pay online.

Accommodation: Fosshótel, Reykjavík

Iceland
Workshop: Days 2-3

FRIDAY-SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 02nd-3RD, 2022

 

Day 2-3

Leave Reykjavík early and head to the highlands, our first location, where Hrauneyjar Hotel will be our base for the next 2 nights. From here we will travel to several locations in the highlands, and as always we base our decision on the weather forecast and conditions each time. Locations in the highlands we will visit include (but are not limited to): Háifoss (Fourth tallest waterfall in Iceland with a drop of 122m) and Granni (situated right next to Háifoss) which are situated in Fossá where they drop side by side in a deep gorge.

The destination on this leg of the tour is the unspoiled highland nature. This is an exceptional place for photography where we encounter lava fields, jet black volcanic sands stretching for miles, mountains covered with bright green moss and colourful craters filled with water.

The highland is covered in geothermal hotspots and previous volcanic activity is often evident, a tell-tale sign of the gigantic forces at work, some a few hundred years ago and others only decades old. The best-known location in the highlands is probably Landmannalaugar where we will photograph colourful rhyolite mountains. This place is like nothing else you‘ve seen before. In Landmannalaugar we have the option of do several short hikes, like into the canyon Grænagil (green canyon) or even hike up to Brennisteinsalda which is a Sulphur mountain/hill.

Workshop: Day 4

Day 4

On our last day up here we will drive through the highlands to a canyon called Eldgjá which holds a beautiful waterfall called Ófærurfoss.

We will photograph there before we leave the highlands. Perhaps we will encounter ranchers on horseback herding moving their flocks of sheep from the highlands to the coastal lowland farms for the winter.

Iceland
Workshop: Day 5-6

MONDAY-TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5TH-6TH, 2022

Day 5-6

Glacier Lagoon,one of the most famous places in Iceland with its floating icebergs will be our playground.

The mystical and iconic Diamond Beach is located just below the lagoon and provides unparralled opportunities to capture the quintessential diamond on the black sand beach image.

On one of the days we are staying in this area we will go to Mt.Vestrahorn, a mountain of raw and rugged beauty with many composition options like sand dunes, reflection and waves.

Accommodation 2 nights close to the lagoon Hotel Hotel Gerdi.

Now that we have covered the technical part, let’s go over what to wear. The weather in Iceland can get quite cold with an average temperature of 8.5C or 47F so dress warm and wear layers! 

Trust me when I say the views and photos are worth the bit of cold ;)

I accept all level of experience in photography, but just make sure you have the gear needed; otherwise it will be no fun for you. If you are missing a lens or a ND filter don’t worry about it!
